Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

At 11:21 a.m. Thursday, Thanksgiving Day, on the largest stage in the world, the best of York County wowed the world watching on TV.
The Nation Ford High School marching band of Fort Mill had already wowed 2 million people in person. Americans cheering, surging, clapping - for them.
A year and a half of drill instructor style practice paid off. In the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City, broadcast on national television, the Nation Ford High School marching band showed just how cool it is to be in the band.

Because at 11:21 a.m., and for the next 63 seconds, NBC showed nothing but the Nation Ford High School band as it came up to the star on the pavement in front of famous Macy's Department Store at 34th Street.
"Beyond cool, beyond description, just beyond amazing," said Tia Ferrara, a 15-year-old alto saxophone player in the band, by telephone after the parade. "I am going to tell my kids and grandkids all about it - when I am old enough to have kids and grandkids, of course."
The 160-member band marched south from near Central Park, through Times Square and its neon lights known throughout America and the world. They ended up in a spot where celebrities clapped and cheered - for them.
Here were these students from little Fort Mill, in South Carolina, dazzling all the way.
Sure, it was cold, and young people's hands and feet should have felt like ice, but the joy of being on America's grandest stage in an honor given to just eight bands in America made all cold seem like a mirage.
"It was cool, so cool, so awesome, just so much fun that I can't believe I really just marched in the Macy's parade in New York City!" squealed Nikki Rizzo, a 17-year-old in the color guard.

The experience thrilled all these young people, from the drummers to the flute players and everyone in between.
